Thankyou for posting these lovely interludes of calm, thoughtful insight. As you say there is not a whole lot that separates us from them so to speak. The posts have made me start to look for the older book as well as old plates - a lot of which I hope to find when I go to Hay later.
Many thanks.

Good luck at Hay. A favourite book hunting venue for me also.

Very nice. I enjoyed that. It certainly has the right feel to it.

"Colombia's pride?" "Visions sublime before my fancy gleam..." What were they smoking?
I think it was the ale that did it!
There are several references in this piece that could benefit from an explanation. Then again I'm still trying to find out what my son is saying when he writes to me in textspeak!

Nice illustration.
I would guess that the artist is conveying that the gentleman anglers are buying bait from the boy. In those days, it
might have been worms, grasshoppers, a small amphibian, or anything else Izaak Walton might have mentioned in his treatise.

G.B, yes, I think you may well be right about the second boy in the "Soar" illustration. The illustrator obviously knew his stuff.

A friend who had never fished before asked to come over and try it out, having recently retired. After I had indoctrinated him into the dark arts of the TFF, I handed him the rod and after a few minutes he had his first fish. I took a photo and another friend suggested I paint it as a Christmas present.

By way of a contrast to some of the lovely poetry, here is a little bit of fun!
( I can think these up at any time, is it a talent? In a way I suppose :Hahaha:)


On a cold and frosty winter morn while trying to catch a pike,
I had a chance encounter with a maiden on a bike
We got on like a house on fire, so now I’m pleased to say
I much prefer her company to piking any day! :Hat:

From here in Oz I wish you all the very best for Christmas and the coming year, I am looking forward to enjoying a Christmas Day morning on the beach. It is not for everyone, but it suits me, as I prefer the warmth to our winter weather at home. I will raise a glass to toast you all, in fact I will make several toasts, why not! :Hat:

I look forward to seeing your next book of poems at Romsey. That one made me smile :Wink:
Happy Christmas to you sir. Cheers.

Have a lovely Christmas Ted and think of us left here
It's very cold and frosty but we're full of Christmas cheer
The beach sounds nice and warm and fun
Don't burn your bits in all that Sun
I hope you have a lovely time, enjoy your festive barbie
And spare a thought for us poor souls, shiverin in Derby :Hat:
With my silken line and delicate hook, I wander in a myriad of ripples and find freedom.
